Donald Trump denies being a racist after reported crude remark

Patty Aguilar | 17 January, 2018, 00:39

"In response to the comments made by President Trump on Thursday about countries including Africa and Haiti, please Join Mayor Bill de Blasio in denouncing Trump at a rally at Time Square on Monday".

The White House has not denied that Trump said "s-thole" though Trump has already pushed back on some depictions of the meeting. "Given the historical reality of how many Africans arrived in the United States as slaves, this statement flies in the face of all accepted behaviour and practice", its spokeswoman Ebba Kalondo told Associated Press.

Mr Trump also said in the meeting that he would prefer immigrants from countries like Norway instead.

Rather than say "shithole" or "shithouse", he referred to African or El Salvadoran immigrants coming into the United States as hailing from "undesirable countries".

"You got people pouring in".

Twitter users were quick to react, with some of them sarcastically saying the fact that Trump insists he is not a racist proves the opposite. Republican Senator Jeff Flake said on Sunday he was told about the remarks by colleagues who attended the meeting, before the news reports emerged.

"He didn't just name a white country, he named the whitest - so white they wear moon-screen", he said. Durbin said the remarks were "vile, hate-filled and clearly racial in their content". The president, in the meeting, also questioned the need to admit more Haitians to the USA, according to people who were briefed on the conversation but were not authorized to describe the meeting publicly.

"And then he went on to describe the immigration from Africa that was being protected in this bipartisan measure". Dick Durbin, D-Ill., claimed the president used the term and both say they did not hear it.

President Donald's Trump's former spouse told the hosts of a United Kingdom morning show on Monday that the president "is definitely not racist".

After an emergency session to weigh Trump's remarks, the group said it was "concerned at the continuing and growing trend from the U.S. administration toward Africa and people of African descent to denigrate the continent and people of colour".

He also explained why he believes it's inaccurate to label Trump a racist for calling Haiti and other third-world countries by the derogatory name.

In Florida, Trump also sounded upbeat on North Korea, after confusion emerged over whether he had suggested in an interview that he had a good relationship with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un.
